Former WWE creative team member John Piermarini has started his blog in which he has released a ton of scoops regarding things that occurred in the company during the two years he was employed. The blog has since been pulled (the Website does say it will be back soon) but we have managed to retain some of the things Piermarini said. Below are some notes:
* Vince McMahon feels that powerhouse Skip Sheffield could become a top babyface behind John Cena.
* Michelle McCool’s real-life relationship with The Undertaker was in no way the reason behind her push with Lay-Cool.
* There were plans to turn Christian heel before his pectoral injury. The idea was that he would feud with the now departed Matt Hardy.
* On the Uso’s WWE introduction and promo, Vince McMahon didn’t understand the hip hop culture and the appeal of the tag-team. The original idea for the Uso’s was to present them as the opposite of what you would expect from a Samoan superstar – intelligent, educated and wearing boots while competing.
